Cutest knitters ever!
I liked the knitting exhibition, and was quite inspired by some techniques, even though most of the stuff had "librarian" or "middle-aged cultural worker" written all over it. The exhibition consisted of some garments but mostly really big swatches (40x40 cm) displaying different techniques. I was disappointed not to be able to see the backside of the works, since that's where you can actually see how it's done in some cases. I was however slightly disobedient and lifted a corner here and there, and particularly one technique caught my interest. I'm trying to figure out how to use it, but I might just make a swatch to see if it works in my hands as well...
As we sat down afterwards to have coffee and knit, I could really feel my knitting mojo slowly returning! Joy was knitting a Tärnabymössa in something called "double knit" which I thought was really cool, so I'll have to try that sometime, and Sofie's debut sock knitting made me want to knit some socks myself. For friends babies, maybe. That way it won't take too much time, and you can still give something handknit to your friends' babies. A win-win!
Now I have to go curl my hair for a party tonight. With my new shorter 'do I might get an afro.
